6:17 pm
continuing, quite a bit above the average. these are some of the high temperatures around the country today. pay special attention to the middle of the country. that's where our weather is coming from. on the mild side of the jet stream so we have to be mild for the next number of days. >> in boston right now, temperatures in the low 40's. the breeze is off the water. kind of from the south-southeast at 10 miles per hour. these temperatures really are not going the fall very much tonight because of two reasons. number one, the wind direction out of the south-southeast. remember, water temperatures are still in the upper 40's and also we've got a blanket of clouds over us, which also prevents the heat of the day escaping back out into space. so the temperatures are reflecting that. notice by early tomorrow morning, readings a little milder than what we have right now. tomorrow, we hit the 50s. maybe even close to 60 in a few spots. tomorrow night, won't be very cold at all. and friday, will be a very mild day. more sun than we'll have tomorrow so even though you're seeing upper first, 60 or higher is very possible on friday and very possible to be repeated on
6:18 pm
it's that wedge of warmth for the middle of the country that moves eastward in our direction. and on top of that it looks like both saturday and sunday will be rain-free. let's back it up a little bit. we have the clouds and as that more and more moist, a bit of drizzle or a little light rain could break out morning, dawn, the morning commute, so it could be wet in spots. in the afternoon. we don't need much because the wind will be out of the the 50s. and on friday, although we start out with clouds, we should have more in the way of sunshine in the afternoon in the boston area. so we have an excellent chance of reaching or slightly exceeding 60 degrees on friday. i know, it sounds pretty amazing. milder toll. very mild on friday. and very mild on saturday. i'm picking 60. showing you one of our computer models, but i think we'll be a few degrees above. this even this is picking 60 degrees for lawrence. a little unsure about sunday in the sense we may have a slight
6:19 pm
then we would only be in the 50s. but if the wind stays southwest we'll be in the 60's breaking records on sunday. the next change will come along about monday. a front approaches. so during the afternoon and or evening, we'll get a band of showers. perhaps some heavy downpours. windy, mild, and then we'll be turning chillier but not super cold on tuesday and kind of windy and a little bit milder perhaps at least one more time for a day or two around wednesday or so of next week. >> so we'll see how things pan out. beyond that i'm checking all the different patterns and i'll check back with you tonight at 11:00. i'm meteorologist harvey leonard. >> now, sports center 5 with mike. mike: former patriot whose now with the texans says he and tom will be enemies but he'll go back to loving him when the game is over. he's not the only player or coach reuniting. >> the patriots have lost two in a row and they sure sound hungry. >> mexican food. sit around and eat marshmallows.
6:20 pm

6:21 pm
sacks and sunday night he'll be going after tom brady, who, despite being hit 36 times in the last three games, is feeling -- >> feel good. fresh as lettuce. >> and let us hope that continues through sunday night. >> sports center 5. >> is lettuce always fresh? always? all right. patrick didn't practice today. meanwhile, on offense, tom brady has to find some people who can consistently hold on to the ball. >> i have confidence in the guys i'm throwing the ball to or else i wouldn't throw it to them. it's just making plays when we have an opportunity to do it and that starts with practice and doing it consistently in practice so we can do it competently if games. >> mooky betts made his professional bowling debut in reno, nevada. he opened up with a score of 224.
6:22 pm
his best game was .249. his nine-game average was .196 which places him 212th out of the 244 bowelers. how is that for versatility and being an athlete. minnesota, keep your eye on the missed free throw had been happens afterwards. there it goes. it's in. there is your ball game, folks. one of the craziest endings. boston, minnesota, beats northfield 57-56 on a shot by a guy named oh, man, oh, man. that's all i keep saying when i see shot, oh, man, oh, man, are you kidding me? oh, man. >> i'm not making it up. >> no way. >> oh, man, oh, man. >>
